Never a Dull Moment

You never know what's waiting for you when you head out the front door in the morning.  Yesterday, I saw:

A cherry tree in full bloom inside the courtyard of the Petit Palais.  No, spring has not progressed this far citywide.  My guess is that it's a good 10 degrees warmer inside the courtyard than elsewhere.  And if you haven't visited the Petit Palais, put it on your list.  The collection is a bit of mish mash but there are some amazing pieces.  Plus it's free.

Poulet de Bresse for sale at the butcher shop.  For 24 euros a kilo, you get to pay for the feet too.  But that is some fine chicken.

A fine equestrian show along the quai des Célestins by la Garde républicaine, I'm assuming as part of the ceremonies related to South African President Jacob Zuma's state visit.

All in all, not a bad day.

I love the advent of spring. We are having fine days in DC now. Sunny, and other than yesterday, hitting the 50s.

How do you get your blog comment thingy to say "Play nice, people". (IE how do you customize it). I see others do something similar...

The first photo is gorgeous. The coming of spring is a wonderful thing. Trees are starting to bloom in Charleston, SC and I'm loving every minute of it.

Yeah spring. It's not really here yet but it's nice to think about.

Oh so jealous! The taste of spring and beauty of Paris give me little pangs here in still-freezing NYC. Bonne weekend!
